Palmer Business Sends First Military-grade Machine Overseas
“A Palmer manufacturing company is sending its first piece of military-grade machinery overseas.
The Triverus product is called MCRRS, short for Mobile Cleaning Recovery Recycle System. It’s basically a high-tech water vacuum designed to clean debris from flight decks on Navy aircraft carriers.
Each machine takes about one month to make and costs around $850,000.
The company has made a handful for the U.S. military. Now it’s filling its first order for the Italian navy.
CEO Hans Vogel said Triverus shows large-scale manufacturing is possible in Alaska.”
